I’ve been playing a bit of bass recently using my Squier 70s vintage modified jazz bass in a 3 piece blues/jazz guitar/bass/drums band. I’m really enjoying it, but in the process have been coming aware of the shortcomings of my bass (as well as of my playing :-) ). The bass feels fine to play, but sounds a bit muddy/muffled/indistinct on the bottom two strings. It could also use some more “punch”. I’m using good amplification (a 250 watt solid state amp into a Barefaced one-10), so I’m assuming it’s the pickups rather than the amp/cab.
- if others have come to similar conclusions about the pickups on these basses, and, if so
- what pickups do folks here recommend as upgrades?
